The Lightweight, Cost Effective Phantom 3 Solution.
Designed specifically for the DJI Phantom 3, MARS is excited to announce a lightweight, compact and affordable safety solution for the Phantom 3.
Weighing in at 2.3 oz., the P3 Lite system is about half the weight of the MARS MINI V2, providing key safety & security in the event of an aircraft malfunction. Like it’s predecessor, the Series 36 Lite, the P3 Lite uses the aerodynamic drag of the aircraft's descent to deploy the parachute, allowing a much lighter weight system with an incredibly minimal footprint. This system requires more altitude to deploy effectively when compared to the MINI V2, but reduces size, weight & cost by nearly half.
Developed specifically for the Phantom 3, the P3 Lite comes with all the necessary hardware to bolt to the aircraft with ease, utilizing micro servo technology for parachute deployment. Easy to assemble and deploy, the user has the choice of a (1) parachute system, or for the maximum & recommended level of safety & security, a (2) parachute system for added reliability. For the MARS P3 Lite, the Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) signal from the deployment device should be set to under 100 Hz. Analog servos can be damaged with high frequency. Caution should be taken, as the servo can become very hot and sustain irreversible damage within seconds.
Below are two videos about another product, the MARS Lite Series 36, which is almost the same as the MARS Lite for Phantom 3 but please keep in mind the Phantom 3 version may differ from what is shown in these videos.

What uav’s will work with MARS Parachute systems?
MARS Parachutes systems can be used on fixed wing planes, quad multi rotors, hexacopers, and octocopters.
How do I deploy a MARS Parachute?
Mars parachute systems are servo operated and can be deployed manual or by a third party controller that uses Pulse Width Modulation (PWM.)
